Recently named as the head coach of University of Miami’s football team, the Miami Hurricanes, the former Oregon Ducks coach Mario Cristobal has tossed his Eugene, OR, home on the market.
Prepping to make the switch back to his home state, the two-time Pac 12 champion has moved on from the Pacific Northwest.
He hopes to double his money should his home sell anywhere near the asking price. Bold play, coach!
Cristobal purchased the home in April 2020 for $925,000 and put it back on the market less than two years later for $1.8 million. It’s currently one of the five priciest places for sale in the college town.
Built in 1999, the residence will be a big score for the next owner.
Completely updated in 2020, the swanky estate offers four bedrooms and six bathrooms spread across nearly 5,000 square feet.
Along with formal living and dining rooms, the layout includes an open kitchen and family room with glass doors leading to a patio outside.
Other highlights include high ceilings, a light and bright palette, a chef’s kitchen, large office, workout room, and two bonus rooms.
Outside, on a large landscaped lot, you’ll find a saltwater pool, sundeck, grill, and dining area.
Cristobal, 51, who played college ball at University of Miami, then started his coaching career as a graduate assistant there.
The Miami native eventually became head coach at Florida International University, and in 2017, signed on to Oregon, where he was named the 2019 Pac-12 Coach of the Year. This month, he agreed to a 10-year, $80 million contract to become head coach for the Hurricanes.
Jon Burke with Triple Oaks Realty holds the listing.
